A few of my favorite things

This one is for my fellow tea sippers. I found it on Pinterest. If I had a dollar for every cup of tea I've drunk in my life I would be rich.

 Now this article from The New Yorker. I knew it all along...reading is better than tranquilizers!

Can Reading Make You Happier?

This one says it all

I'd probably finish more books if I didn't read in bed. I keep falling asleep! LOL! 😊

More Great Books To Talk About

I just finished a really good book. It kept me reading past midnight for a couple of nights! I highly recommend it. When Never Comes by Barbara Davis was a suspense-filled, sweet story about heartache and redemption. Here's what the editor says:

"What if you could save a child in need, but she would be a constant reminder of past hardship and heartache? Could you do it? Our heroine, Christy-Lynn Parker, never wanted to have kids. She had a horrible childhood—first with her drug-addled mother, next in foster care, and ultimately out on the streets. To Christy-Lynn’s relief, her husband never pushed for children. In fact, she thought he didn’t want them at all. So imagine her shock when she finds out after his death that he had a daughter named Iris with another woman—the same woman he died within the depths of an icy bay in Maine."

Do you know about Amazon Giveaways?

Did you know that Amazon gives away tons of stuff, including books on the Giveaway site? Most of the time there is no requirement to enter a giveaway but sometimes you will need to watch a short video or follow the person doing the giveaway.

Today when I checked out the site I found giveaways for books, a Kindle Fire tablet, a motion detector, a french press coffee maker, Baby toys, a designer handbag, all sorts of iPhone cases, jewelry and toys plus a plethora of other stuff.
Check it out. It's fun, free and who knows, you may be a winner! When you click the item to see if you have won, a box pops up and when you click the box it tells you if you have won or not. It usually offers a discount on the item if you are not a winner.

Here are some things I found today:

Here's the thing about free books, Authors put their books out there free for a limited time hoping to get reviews. Reviews drive sales. Let's face it unless you know the author, you are not likely to purchase a book with no reviews.

There are web services that will charge authors a fee to send notices about their books to the websites extensive members. It's sort of a win/win situation. The writer hopefully gets reviews. sometimes they get email addresses for their own lists, and the website makes money. We as readers get free books!  Sometimes we have to share our email address. Some sites don't collect email addresses and if they do, you can always opt out when they send you mail.

With all that said, here are a few more that I subscribe to Instant FreebyBargain Booksy  This one offers drastically reduced prices: Book Bub
